4 HUMAN INTERFACES
4 HUMAN INTERFACES 4.1ENERVISTA UR SETUP SOFTWARE INTERFACE
The EnerVista UR Setup software provides a graphical user interface (GUI) as one of two human interfaces to a UR device.
The alternate human interface is implemented via the device's faceplate keypad and display (refer to the Faceplate inter-
face section in this chapter).
The EnerVista UR Setup software provides a single facility to configure, monitor, maintain, and trouble-shoot the operation
of relay functions, connected over local or wide area communication networks. It can be used while disconnected (off-line)
or connected (on-line) to a UR device. In off-line mode, settings files can be created for eventual downloading to the device.
In on-line mode, you can communicate with the device in real-time.
The EnerVista UR Setup software, provided with every L60 relay, can be run from any computer supporting Microsoft Win-
95, 98, NT, 2000, ME, and XP. This chapter provides a summary of the basic EnerVista UR Setup software interface
features. The EnerVista UR Setup Help File provides details for getting started and using the EnerVista UR Setup software
To start using the EnerVista UR Setup software, a site definition and device definition must first be created. See the EnerV-
ista UR Setup Help File or refer to the Connecting EnerVista UR Setup with the L60 section in Chapter 1 for details.
a) ENGAGING A DEVICE
The EnerVista UR Setup software may be used in on-line mode (relay connected) to directly communicate with the L60
relay. Communicating relays are organized and grouped by communication interfaces and into sites. Sites may contain any
number of relays selected from the UR-series of relays.
b) USING SETTINGS FILES
The EnerVista UR Setup software interface supports three ways of handling changes to relay settings:
In off-line mode (relay disconnected) to create or edit relay settings files for later download to communicating relays.
While connected to a communicating relay to directly modify any relay settings via relay data view windows, and then
save the settings to the relay.
You can create/edit settings files and then write them to the relay while the interface is connected to the relay.
Settings files are organized on the basis of file names assigned by the user. A settings file contains data pertaining to the
following types of relay settings:
Factory default values are supplied and can be restored after any changes.
The following communications settings are not transferred to the L60 with settings files.
Modbus Slave Address
Modbus TCP Port Number
RS485 COM1 Baud Rate
RS485 COM1 Parity
COM1 Minimum Response Time
